like jobs and the economy, the federal debt, and the future of medicare. tonight's debate is being broadcast on television stations throughout virginia and you can join live conversation about the debate on twitter, hashtag, people's debate. here is a look at the guidelines for tonight's debate. candidates will answer questions from me and our panel of four. for each question, each candidate will have 90 seconds to respond. the other will have 60 seconds for a rebuttal. there may also be a need for an additional rebuttal with a follow-up question which i will ask at various times. at the conclusion of tonight's debate, the candidates will have two minutes each to sum up their thoughts. let's meet the panel. from the league of women voters of virginia, president lynn gordon. from wtvr cbs 6, anchor stephanie rochon. also joining us, the state director of aarp virginia, bill kallio. and from wcve-fm, vice president and general manager bill miller. thank you all for being with us this evening. it was determined by a coin toss that tim kaine will be the first to deliver his opening sta
in infrastructure, if we level the playing field, we will grow the economy. frankly, we have a ball and chain. it is congress. congress is holding us back. we need to change congress in two ways. we people who are more fiscally responsible. when the people who know the basics of how to work together. you will hear these things a lot tonight in my comments. i was the governor who drew top tax fraud. i had to cut $5 billion from the state budget, including my own salary. i'm the only governor in modern times who left the office with a smaller general fund budget and when i started. i know how to be fiscally responsible. my opponent when into the united states senate in 2001 with the biggest surplus in the united states and six years later left with massive deficits. during his time in the senate, the national debt went up by $16,000. he conceded that spending was a problem in the senate. we also have people who need to know how to work together. i learned to cut crime bills and the economy. my opponent said his job was to not democrats softly. he took this similar position in the senate, fighti
and the greatest peacetime expansion of our economy in the nation's history. by contrast, the decade checked by bush tax rates squandered our budget surpluses, produced net- jobs and culminated in the great recession. the lesson here is that the contrary -- is that contrary to supply-side economics, the level of the top rate does not by itself dictate what happens to gdp. a balanced budget aided by increased revenues just might restore confidence to investors and jump-start our economy. for the third and final element of this tax reform model, we turn to investment income. it is time to reduce the sizable differential and the tax treatment of earned and unearned income. the reduction in the capital gains rate to 15% under president bush was a major contributor to the growth and wealth disparities we see today. the top 1% on average received 20% of incoming capital gains, 10 times as much as the rest of the country. capital gains makes up 60% of the income recorded by the forbes 400. the extremely low 50% rate in effect today is an allied air. it is the lowest rate on investment income since
. >> they are trying to suck the life blood out of the economy. >> vampires? really, mr. romney? this sucking up to the right wing went too far. nice try, moderate mitt. but we got the tape and we got you. water will work for a few seconds but if you're not drinking it, it's going to get dry again. i recommend biotene. all the biotene products like the oral rinse...the sprays have enzymes in them. the whole formulation just works very well. it leaves the mouth feeling fresh. if i'm happy with the results and my patients are happy with the results, i don't need to look any farther. that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... discovering once-daily levemir® flexpen. flexpen® is prefilled. doesn't need refrigeration for up to 42 days. no drawing from a vial. dial the exact dose. inject by pushing a button. flexpen® is insulin delivery... my way. levemir® (insulin detemir [rdna origin] injection) is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabe

, how would you describe the jobs economy and right now? guest: this is the weakest recovery we have had since world war ii. the jobs numbers each month, we have averaged around 145,000 jobs created per month this year. that is barely enough to keep up with the growth of the working age population. and it has been a somewhat brazilian recovery in that there have been a lot of fears that we would go back into recession at various times and that has not happened. the overall economy has grown roughly 2% since the recession ended in june, 2009. that is a fairly weak growth rate, particularly after the death of the recession. by many measures, this is easily the worst since the great depression corporate -- the so the weak growth we've had since then has been difficult for the unemployed. we have a lot of long-term unemployed, that's been a record -- in the past it's at record levels. and we've talked about the crisis of long-term unemployment. hopefully it will pick up soon. host: let's take some calls from our guest and we want to hear about your job suation. caller: good morning. host: pl
fiscal 2011 thanks to higher tax revenue because of a stronger economy nd some lower spending, $60 million year over year and those numbers are down from the record $1.4 trillion in deficits we saw in 2009. we like to give you the monthly number for september. last month of the fiscal year. here's something you don't see every way. a surplus of $75 billion compared to a deficit of $73 billion in september last year. that is mainly due to accounting items, the biggest one being a shift in $60 billion in government benefit payments for social security and medicare and other things into august's of this year because of weekends and holidays in september. the administration is projecting a end to this trillion dollar trend for this fiscal year, 2013, budget forecasts projecting a deficit for 2013 of 990 one billion dollars. liz: a top $1 trillion for the fourth year roebuck monthly there's a surplus? we are looking for grain shoots. is that the start of a trend possibly? >> no. no. if we are looking at a 990 one billion dollar deficit for 2013, we are still going to have a lot of red i
play it. >> spain spends 42% of their total economy on government. we're now spending 42% of our economy on government. i don't want to go down the path to spain. i want to go down the path of growth that puts americans to work with more money coming in because they're working. >> all right. i don't want -- >> no, no. >> i can imagine it would seem offensive. here is the question had it comes to his words versus the president's words. the president, everyone hangs on every syllable or consonant. mitt romney, does he have more latitude or is he under the same microscope over seize? >> he is not under the same microscope. some of the things he's said in the past before that comment about spain, for instance, about the palestinians and how israelis are somehow implying culturally business minded where as the palestinians are not and some of the things he said regarding russia, for instance, that it is america's number one geopolitical foe, and those have been framed in the foreign press and other countries outside of the united states as gaffes by someone who is not experienced in f
, growth, urn certainty in the economy. debates are a great way to tease out issues in specific. i think if the debate revolves around a look over the shoulder, that's probably a losing proposition for the democrats, if it involves a fooshd lorwardg program it's going to provide a robust -- >> you think paul ryan's got unprecedented mastery of fact and he's been studying diligently for the debate and i expect he'll come prepared to answer any question that's thrown at him. it's also not, you know, he is -- he is an ambassador and a component of the romney ticket. and he will be advancing the governor's vision in contrasting that with the president's track record of failed policies and results. >> can i jump? you used the word specifics. i want to ask a specific question about the specifics that you heard at the last deba debate. does governor romney specifically embrace simpson-bowles or does he not? he gave us both answers in the last debate. what is your understanding of the governor's approach, he's a presidential candidate, to simpson-bowles? yes or no. >> the governor's approach to
that used to be. bill: republican nominee continues to press on this issue, that's the economy. >> can we afford four more years like the last four years? he wants another stimulus. how did that first one work out? and then, he wants to pick winners and losers among companies, or losers in his case and then, of course he wants to hire more government workers. look, all of these things have not ignited our economy the way it should be ignited. we've seen the slowest recovery from a recession. bill: john roberts traveling with the campaign. live in vanmeter, iowa, that is west of des moines. what is happening there, john? >> reporter: good morning. governor romney will be talking agriculture today. not surprisingly we're on a 700 acre farm owned by the cook family. a lot of soybeans and corn here. we're in madison county. governor romney won this in the caucuses by the way. he will argue the president's policies things like estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though th
they provided points and issues on zingers and economy and debate decorum. >> mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground but i think people would be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> with regard to social security, we will not, we will not privatize it. if we listened to governor romney and congressman during the bush years, man where all those seniors would be now if there money had been in the market. their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guaranty of medicare. >> here he is the problem. they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar turning medicare into a piggybank for obamacare. >> usually when there is a crisis we pull together. we pull together as a nation. as i said, even before we knew what happened to the ambassador the governor was holding a press conference, was holding a press conference. that is not presidential leadership. >> this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed a youtube video. now trying to blame the rome rom ticket for making this an issue. with you shou
and they are talking about the many roadblocks as they see it to getting our economy back on track. dagen: peter barnes is in d.c. with a whole lot more. hey peter. peter: hey guys a football metaphor from the quarterback of the business roundtable this morning referring to the nfl lockout of professional referees that was resolved a couple of weeks ago, he joined the heads of the u.s. chamber of commerce, the national manufacturers association, and the national retail federation in calling on congress to reduce uncertainty in government policy to help create the confidence businesses large and small need to invest and hire. and with the clock running down, they urged congress and the white house to get moving on fixing the fiscal cliff. >> you really don't even have a tax code in the country today. this is for large business, medium sized business, mom and pop, the individual entrepreneur, what are the rules? i mean it is like we're playing with the replacement referees in the irs. peter: tom donahue of the u.s. chamber said nothing is going to happen until november 7th. first got to see who wins on n
romney is now ahead of president obama in terms of trusting him to do a better job on the economy. how much are the american people just not looking at these numbers or at least questioning their veracity? >> i think that american people are having undoubtably as much difficulty translating and interpreting the numbers as much as the professionals are. the electorate is extremely volatile. much more volatile than any person imagine. with romney's numbers bouncing as much as they did after one debate, that shows people -- i do not think it is an election of committed voters, this will be in election of leaners. they are all swaying up there. connell: a lot of people have not made up their mind. these are big moves. we head into tonight and then next week, can the president use these jobs numbers as an argument that jobs and the economy is improving? >> i think, clearly, vice president biden and mr. obama next week will use these numbers to say things are getting better. the burden will be on the opposition to explain why the economy has been as weak as it has been. i have to say, i give
problem. here's the secret he's trying to hide. take a look at this. the economy is getting better. the jobless rate in ohio is falling. now down to 7.2%. so mr. economy has become mr. scare tactics. >> we are the most innovative and productive people in the world but we will not allow them to keep taking our jobs on an unfair basis. >> stop taking our jobs. yes. he's vowing to stop what president obama couldn't. it's time to crack down. it's time to get tough. it's time to stop the madness. >> china has cheated. i will stop them from stealing american jobs. we have to crack down on cheaters like china. when someone cheats like china, we have to crack down on it. >> cheating and stealing. okay, america. are you ready for the brick wall of reality romney ran into today? an amazing report reveals romney has invested in the companies that he's promising to crack down on. one of them ships 500 jobs to china. how is that for a crackdown? how is that for getting tough? the outsourcer in chief is still cashing in. the gop has lost control of this jobs debate and this won't help the case.
the economy post-debate? we saw some shifting -- not a lot, but some shifting in mitt romney's favor. he's ahead on the economy in florida, ahead on the economy in virginia, but behind in ohio. it sort of tells me, that sort of explains the leads. maybe it's better, as good as any number that you have out there. >> sure. this is such an important question in terms of not only the right direction, which has gotten a little tighter in terms of people thinking things are heading a little better than they were, but in terms of the economy, romney in the driver's seat in those two states but not necessarily in ohio. and the favorable or unfavorable, very important here. romney lifted his favorabilities in all three states as a result of the debate. but in ohio, he's still upside down. obama still over 50 in all three states. so he didn't get hurt. romney got helped. the race got closer. >> we also had a conservative ideological advantage of conservative in the exit polls. what do you tell folks that look at those numbers? >> this tells you you can't weight your data by party idea. we've said
that's the worst thing you can do for the poor is to have no economic growth and a terrible economy. the way you get the poor off the rolls is to get them a job. this president has done a terrible job in that regard. host: next phone call john republican. caller: he says, there's no reason to build roads in the suburbs when they put it in the cities. guest: sir, i'm not aware of that. you maybe referring to oneqrnsñf the transportation bills that passed. you confess that the funding mechanisms for those projects are very complicated. i'm not sure that i can be much help in your question. host: cleveland, ohio, democratic caller. caller: all you republicans keep saying the obama economic program didn't work. what happened, kennedy died, there was no control of the senate, you republicans filibusterrered 275 bills in 2010. they effectively killed the total obama economic agenda. we've had over the last four years the republican austerity. the vets jobs bill was filibusterrered. four republicans crafted the bill and when the bill came to the floor, 58 members on the floor, 42 rep
the world and around this country and especially in the economy. the president has said he was too polite. advisers intimate he's going to be more aggressive obviously. but still, joe biden is joe biden. he's the regular guy. joe six-pack from scranton. president obama, that's not his persona. having said all that, i think it's a fair assumption we're going to see a much more aggressive president obama on tuesday night. >> okay. mike. as always many thanks. we're getting an update on what the gop candidates are doing today in just a minute. >>> first president obama may be reaching out to younger voters next week with another appearance on "the daily show with jon stewart." stewart criticized the president's performance in that first debate so there may be a few jokes at his expense. president obama will do the show on comedy central this coming thursday, two days after the second debate with mitt romney. >>> superstar bruce springsteen is on the road this week. he's singing the praises of president obama. and on thursday the boss will be joined by former president bill clinton, another b

stronger than on the economy and other matters. the other critique is that mitt romney is saying i would do things differently, but there isn't a huge spelling out of how he would do things differently. you mentioned iran. going forward he had a detailed critique of how to handle it forward. that's the trouble trying to define stark lines. that's why he went philosophical to say i would be tougher. we have a duty as america to lead. he mentioned syria. we need to step in and support demonstrators and those things. we'll see. he clearly has an intention, an opening against obama. >> chris, while carrying a bigger stick on foreign policy he's also on the campaign trail being kinder and gentler himself in unveiling what they didn't do at the convention other than through surrogates. he's been giving speeches now three in a row where he gives example of his ministry, his mormon ministry and conduction to suffering people. chris, thank you. >> thank you. >> now i want to move on to a point of personal privilege. some viewers might be confused by the fact that the obama campaign is airing a comme
strokes. we have all been told this is an economy election but the foreign policy discussions have really been bubbling given when's going on in the middle east and africa. another way that governor romney sets a presidential tone, what should we expect today? >> well, i suspect that candidate will talk in broad strokes. he's already indicated that he wants to challenge the president on what happened in lib why and whether there was enough security. he's made clear he's using tough language against rush why and china and he is talked about the economic problems in europe, as well. the problem for mitt romney is that in many cases it's not just what happened during his trip to europe and the middle east. it's really the reaction and some of the gaffes he's made on foreign policy. in referring to spain, for example, as overspending as the source of the problem when in fact it was the property bubble. germany and scandinavian countries spend more than the spanish have. we misunderstood that problem. he's annoyed the british over security and alienated the russians talking about toughening th
in virginia what conservative leadership can do to build a stronger economy. thank you also to congressman goodlot for joining us today. and particular thanks to general pete. i appreciate his invitation to be with you today at the virginia military institute. it's a privilege to be at an institution like this. it's done so much for our nation, both in times of war and in times of peace. for more than 170 years, vmi has done more than educate students. it's guided their transformation in to citizens, warriors and leaders. vmi graduates served with honor in the nation's defense just as many are doing today in afghanistan and other lands. and since september 11th attacks many of the sons and daughters of vmi defended america and mourn with you the 15 brave souls who have been lost. i join you in praying for the many vmi graduates right now serving in harm's way. may glod bleod bless all who ha served and who all serve. george marshal, the chief of staff of the army became secretary of state and secretary of defense, who helped vanquish fascist and then planned europe's rescue of depair. it w
. >> our entire premise of the tax reform plans is to grow the economy and create jobs. it's a plan estimated to create 7 million jobs. we think that the government taking a 28% of a family or business. income is business president obama thinks the government ought to be able to take as much as 44.8% of a small business's income. if you tax every person and successful small business making over to hundred $50,000 at 100% it would only run the government 90 days. we would still have a $300 billion deficit. there are not enough rich people to tax to pay for all of their spending. watch out, middle-class, the tax issues are coming to you. host: joseph is in our jacksonville, florida line, in support of president obama. caller: good morning. i enjoyed the debate. several things caught my eye with vice president biden's. he did a lot of laughing and smirking. some of it was called for and some was not. going back to last week, watching romney tell those untruths, i believe he had to do some of that because the only thing paul ryan was doing was complementing what romney was doing, which
administration and libya as opposed to focusing in on issue number one, the economy? >> i think they're going to try and do both. i think the reason they're pounding at the libya issue is at they think there's an opening there. they found a chink in the armor. mitt romney right now is kind of tied with the president in the last poll we looked at on the leadership issue. they want to get an advantage. what they're trying to say and what joe biden said yesterday, if he didn't know, he should have known. the buck stops there. this is a question of who's in charge. what we did hear at the state department hearing is that there is an explanation for this from the state department which is they felt they wanted the libyans to take charge of their own security. and of course the president and the vice president are not involved in every security matter when it comes to embassies. but this being a political year, mitt romney is saying you know what, by implication if i were presidt, i would have known about the security problems. or the security problems would have been fixed o
we have is weakening economy. 4% growth, 2% growth. now 1.9% that is --. bill: see you at 9:30, stuart. what is next? alisyn: we are just getting started, bill. benghazi was there a cover-up on in the highest levels of the government and was it more about politics. bill: the search for a missing 10-year-old girl. police are giving an update and we're live on the scene with that. alisyn: rescuers are combing through rubble looking for a missing construction worker after a five-story parking garage collapses. >> people yelling. people screaming. it was just real horrible. >> i just seen a lot of smoke. the building shaking and, it just started collapsing. alisyn: we have a fox news alert for you now. a yemeni security official at the u.s. embassy was assassinated in a drive-by shooting. witnesses reporting a masked gunman on a motorcycle shot the man outside of his home in the capital of sanaa. local authorities say the killing bears hallmarks of al qaeda. there have been a wave of assassinating government officials in yemen following a crackdown on security. bill: over who kn
. connell: we showed this number that we need 200,000 jobs a month, you know, in order to get the economy at least get it up and going to some extent again. even that there's some debate on the amount of jobs we actually need per month. you know, we have two different surveys. the 873 is from the separate household number, but two thirds of those were part time jobs. if it comes up in the next debate and romney tries to bring up these issues that i raised with you, how should obama handle it? should he say hey we're on the right track things are getting better or say we have a lot more work to do? >> if i were him, i would say both of those things. he can claim that things have gotten better. that he inherited a bad situation and it is now improving, and the last report was pretty good even on the payroll side because they revised up the two previous months. but on the other hand, we certainly haven't had the kind of plus 200,000 job numbers that you mentioned, that we would really like to see, maybe even more than that to get the unemployment down to a reasonable level. connell: are we o
